That is the question.

I have to admit that for the longest time I've felt somewhat of a lack of motivation regarding this project on account on the lack of feedback I have received. Is it worth continue if there is no captive audience? How do I know what they want if I don't hear from them? Is this silence something positive or negative? Those were some of the thoughts plaguing my mind, but then I realized something, who cares?

I'm not making this game for praise or glory, I'm making something that I can be proud of, something to stand behind and say, 'yes, after all the years of hard work, I did it!'

So I'm a little ashamed it took me this long to figure this out for my own, but now that I have this realization I will forge full speed ahead! Expect a few more blogs from me from this point onwards on my design process and decisions. I want to document this new spiritual step on my journey.

Intrinsic motivation is the best kind of motivation, and that holds true of course even beyond the realm of gamemaking.

If you're looking for feedback on the current build, I can give it a whirl when I have some time. I like what you do and you've been a part of the community since as long as I can remember.

I have just finished playing your game, I love it, the idea is good and so far you're doing a really good job with it. I admit I'm kind of jealous. There are a few flaws here and there but overall its good. (If you wish me to go into depth about what I think the flaws are, just let me know. Otherwise, I'm not gonna start something.) I have to know what happens next so I hope you come out with more soon!
